A tear for Tasmania

I've had two fantastic years on Tasmania – the most beautiful island of them all!
It has been time of contrasts: exciting wildlife adventures, huge professional disappointments, great friends, backstabbers, shared interests, thoughts and tastes, a lot of wasted energy and time, countless enjoyable conversations, great local beer, thousands of photos (even some nice among them!), hundreds of beautiful fresh and sunny mornings, freezing cold weather, poorly designed houses, idiotic separate cold and hot water taps, and, I'm sure, tons of unforgettable memories. I will always miss Tassie.

Hobart must be one of the most beautiful towns in the world. It combines cosy with spectacular, friendly with majestic. I tried to stitch some photos together, but unfortunately no image can convey the countless nuances of colors, the true senses of freedom, awe and pure pleasure, the scale of the vista, the freshness of the air and the calls of the birds.
